The 2020 Silverado 1500 Drops This One Exterior Color10
The 2020 Silverado represents the second model year of the all-new, fourth-generation Silverado that launched last year as the 2019 Silverado. Chevy’s bread-and-butter light duty truck is getting various updates and changes, highlighted by the introduction of the new 3.0L LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax engine, the expanded availability of the 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine and the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission, the introduction of Vertical Trailering Mirrors and the expansion of the available wheel options. Moreover, the 2020 Silverado carries over the same exterior paint options as the 2019 model, with one exception – the deletion of Oakwood Metallic.
That’s the long and short of it with regard to the 2020 Silverado 1500 paint lineup. Beyond the deletion of Oakwood Metallic, which carried paint code GE0, no additional Silverado colors were added or removed from the palette. As such, the current 2020 Silverado paint option lineup includes the following shades (paint code listed in parentheses):
- Iridescent Pearl Tricoat (G1W)
- Havana Brown Metallic (G2X)
- Satin Steel Metallic (G9K)
- Northsky Blue Metallic (GA0)
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
- Summit White (GAZ)
- Black (GBA)
- Shadow Grey Metallic (GJI)
- Cajun Red Tintcoat (GPJ)
When the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was released, the Oakwood Metallic exterior paint color was offered with every available interior color combination and all trim levels except for the base WT models. The color was also not available on any Double Cab models or LTZ and High Country models equipped with power assist steps (BRS).
For reference, here the 2019 Silverado trim levels and color combinations:
2019 Silverado 1500 trims levels:
- Custom Trail Boss
- LT Trail Boss
- High Country
2019 Silverado interior colors:
- Jet Black
- Jet Black / Umber
- Gideon / Very Dark Atmosphere
It’s interesting that Chevrolet would discontinue Oakwood Metallic with the 2020 Silverado, and not replace it with another hue. After all, less choice is not a great thing, especially when it comes to the full-size pickup trucks, where choice and customization are highly important.

I wish they would add more interior colors! Across the whole line!
It looks really pinkish on my screen, but I imagine its closer to that popular “champagne-pink-brown” that I see on a lot of Equnoxes and Terrains.
Forgot to include the Red Hot/G7C paint color.
I noticed one of these Oakwood Metallic Silverados unsold on a dealers lot, and iwas like “that truck really looks like S#%!” GM sure has alot of problems. Everyone I know is switching to Ram and loving them.
Everyone I know with a 2019 Ram 1500 regret buying one because it spends 75% of its time at the dealership waiting for a fix, a recall, another software fix, a new transmission, a new touchscreen, another attempt to fix the water leaks, a new axle because apparently a pinion seal leak means the whole axle has to go, etc. The lawyers gotta love the booming lemon law business the 2019 Rams are bringing in. Not only are they ugly AF now that the front end is trying to not look like a Ram, quality control took the day off at the Ram plant. Another year with all the FCA brands lining the bottom of the reliability lists it seems.
“Everyone I know is getting Lunchables mom!!!!!”
Thats how your post reads BTW, like a 9 year old.
Just saying .
I switched to a 2019 Ram from a 2015 Sierra. Not a single problem with the Ram. The best truck that I have ever owned. I will never go back to a GM truck.
On my second new GMC 1500.
2015 Denali and a 2019 AT4.
Only had one return visit to the dealer for a warrant cracked brake pad, and so far no returns on my 2019…. Both have been outstanding… My previous owned top of the line hemi Ram, was back at the dealers for issues so many times I can not count…. when it was working it was a nice truck, great looks with its 2 tone paint, but its 8 speed tranny sucked, as did its non stop needs for stupid repairs that it never should have needed….. anyway, I will stay with GMC now….not one bad thing to say about the two I owned. Lots of power, smooth, comfortable, and lots of hi tech…. Engine only needs one spark plug per cylinder also, unlike the hemi…..I also don’t need a large screen TV sized info unit taking up my dash, but thats just me
2019 Ram has over 2.5 million trucks being recalled due to various issues (google 2019 ram truck recalls). Ram is selling their trucks at 25% below MSRP, very cheap leases that Ford or GM will never match as they will not lose money per truck just to increase their sales. Go and shut a Ram truck door it is very tinny, GM and Ford are much better built and will last. Ram selling their trucks so cheap is going to kill the resale value basically screwing the people who are buying these trucks. The facts from JD POWERS, AND CONSUMER REPORTS show Ram is at the bottom of quality ratings and their defects are well documented.
Please note the % of construction companies using the RAM is very low, below 10%, the reason is the quality and ruggedness of the truck compared to GM and Ford is poor and not reliable.
You get what you pay for, RAM is all show and no go when used for any construction and towing. Also for the common person for their daily vehicle you will have quality issues. The increase of RAM sales in 2019 will not be long term as again you get what you pay for and they are lower quality parts that allows the Trucks to be sold so cheap.
I love the color do you know how many people on the east coast want the different colors im a 5th generation who buys nothing but gm I have. A 86 Chevy cavalier in my garage and I have a 2001 silverado in sunset orange metalic Z71. I also have a 2000 silverado in summit white and I. leased a 2016 Chevy silverado in siren red and my lease was up the dealer would not let me purchase it because it only has 5,600 miles on it so I hope chevy should ask the people what color’s they would like to see
